As environmentalists, Year 3 will embark on a waste management journey. Showing service and belonging they will monitor and make changes to the way we as a school get rid of waste. They will understand how and why most waste is unnecessary and lean how to ‘Make do and Mend’ and upcycle unwanted items.
As they show love and care for God’s world they will find alternative ways to spread the message on how to successfully care for the planet. To facilitate healthy relationships and caring for others, learners will play games in small groups and as a class, the main focus being on how and why they feel a certain way. Learners will be independent when dressing for FS.
They will build upon their knowledge and experiences of FS to enable them to work collaboratively in groups and independently. They will effectively manage conflict and be able to find resolutions independently. They will begin to have some understanding of how and why being outside can improve their mental health.
Challenges will increase confidence and independent thinking. Working together will be in teacher selected groups to improve communicating skills and working effectively with others.
Learners should be making links between classroom learning and difficulties they have faced in their Forest School sessions. To embed class learning pupils will focus on waste management. They will collect litter as part of a litter survey that will span 4 weeks which will be displayed in school. They will present their findings to the school council as evidence for the Eco Charter.
